2001 Toyota Avalon XLS 4dr Sedan w/Bucket Seats (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I traded in my 1st Avalon ('85 XLS) for
the new model last year after having
testing the Acura, the S80, and
others. The Avalon is the best car
built for the money.
One of the Avalon's greatest strengths.
I recently learned, is its safety and
handling ability. Last weekend, while
driving on the highway at approx 80 mph
next to a semi, I hit a large rock in
the road which blew both of my right
tires. I had no problem keeping
control of the car, slowing down, and
getting to the right. I credit the
Avalon's handling with literally saving
Roomy interior and comfort.
Informative display. Great handling at
While the display information is
helpful, it is a little distracting.
